Most will have heard by now Google has brought their closure of Google Plus (G+) personal accounts forward from August 2019 to
Tuesday 2 April 2019
(just over one week away).
Google have provided the means for users to save a record of their G+ data (posts etc.) prior to that date: Once an account is closed all related data will be permanently deleted. Of course, it is likely users of G+ will have shared the same, or similar, posts, articles, and information in other social media accounts and may consequently not consider the loss of G+ data an issue to concern themselves about. However, there may be elements they would like to retain a record of, for example, friends etc. they have in their circles; those they follow; collections; etc. It is not intended to go into a lot of detail here. This post is simply designed to be a reminder.
The earlier article Google Plus (G+) is Closing provided some background detail as well as simplified guidance upon how to save data which, readers of this article may wish to avail themselves of.
